NFN will start Intern Program for iTech’s Multi-Media Students.
In mid-December, President Birgit Pauli-Haack and Immokalee Coordinator Shelley Lieb met with Dorin Oxeder and Jamie Hernandez at the Immokalee Technical Center, short and lovingly called iTech. Mr. Oxeder is the Principle of the Vocational Training Center and Jamie Hernandez, Golden Apple Teacher 2011, is the Program Manager of the Multimedia Design and Web Development course.
NFN4 Good is NFN’s technology support program for local nonprofits that provides its members with WordPress, world’s most used web content management system, and with training on how to use it. The interns will be trained by the Naples Free-Net volunteers on how to maintain and manage a WordPress site and also assist nonprofit members in building out their website. Pauli-Haack said it’s a great syngery between the future webdesigner and experts learning to solve real world problems and the non-profits getting start-up assistance to have a more future- oriented website and migrate their organization into the online world.
Update January 31, 2013. The installment of the program is now finished and after more nonprofits signed up for NFN4Good program, the Internship program started in Janaury 2013 with four interns. More will be published soon on http://www.nfn4good.org.
